Morocco Maduka Buried In Anambra (Photos) by stephenduru: 7:53am On Apr 08
It was a moment of grief at Umugama village, Ukwulu, Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra state as friends and well wishers gathered for the burial ceremony of late Chief Emeka Morocco Maduka, popularly known as 'Eze Egwu Ekpili'.

Chief Morocco, who died at 70, made his mark in music with the traditional Egwu Ekpili music, as he was credited with the modernization of the traditional folklore music with modern musical instruments and sound.

His songs focused on moralistic, philosophical and numerous issues that faced the society.

Chief Morocco is survived by wife, Mrs. Bridget Ifeonugekwu Maduka and seven children.

The burial ceremony was attended by the traditional ruler of Ukwulu, Igwe Peter Uyanwa, former Governor of Anambra state Peter Obi, his producer Chief Samuel Nwobu of Sammy Sparkle, Members of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria from different chapters and a host of other dignitaries.

Extend our regards to Celestine Ukwu, Fela, Oliver d coque, Osadebe and others
The difference between the dead and the living is time
Everyone MUST die including useless and corrupt Nigerian politicians
Tell Chinua Achebe that things have fallen apart in Nigeria, That the centre can no longer hold

RIP Sir Emeka Morocco. You did not die, you joined our great ancestors.

Legend of igbo music and custodian of igbo culture.

l still play Asili 98 often. Nice beat, slow and biography of Uba na Eze. Okpotokpo nwa grin

If you want to understand the igbo culture and way of life; education, trade, marriage, investments and philanthropism. Listen to that music or tell your children to do that.


"Ndi onyibo suru we si, charity begins at home"
l don't miss repeating this line with him.

Our musical value have long been reduced to nothing as we now dance to the beats than pay more attention to the lyrics...
